The 2014 Thunderbird Camporee focuses on classic camporee events and activities that emphasize teamwork, basic scout and camping skills, and the patrol method. Units should prepare for the Camporee by practicing Scouting fundamentals – knots and lashings, first aid, plant identification, proper camping techniques, and skills that a Scout learns on the Trail to First Class. There are a series of events planned to test your patrol as a team, a service project to remind us that as Scouts we should serve others with Good Turns, and a few historical museums will be open that should be fun and educational.
This year’s theme, Brownsea Island – Back to Basics, is centered on the first Boy Scout camp that was conducted by Lord Baden-Powell on Brownsea Island in 1907. We encourage all participants to adopt this theme and research what the first camp was and incorporate it into all of your activities this year at the spring Camporee. The competitions are a mixture of activities from the first camp as well as today’s camps and Camporee. Enjoy yourselves and have fun as we go "Back to Basics".
